FISIPE is an European producer of acrylic fibres with plant at Lavradio, Portugal.
FISIPE, from a company producing basically standard textile fibre, has gradually become a producer of acrylic fibres, namely pre-dyed fibres, functional fibres and fibres for technical applications. We are an exporting company (99% of our production) that sells in markets worldwide.
Based on the strategic option elected - to invest, through innovation and a systematic research, in new applications for acrylic fibre as well as in new requirements in the current segments, the company started to develop carbon fibre precursors (CFP). With the entry of the SGL Group in FISIPE, this project gained a new dynamics and dimension, which implies the gradual conversion of some production lines of textile fibres for the production of these new high quality fibres (CFP).
In the SGL Group we search for excellence in our performances through the implementation of the methodology of the Six Sigma program in every activity of the Group companies and we firmly commit ourselves to a Sustainable Development based upon the balance among its three vectors: environmental protection, social responsability and economic growth.
